On tap at Biggie’s, updated version of brewers’ most popular ale (newly labeled and stylistically bettering similarly-named ’06 precursor, Belgian Style Dubbel) places spicy brown-sugared dried fruiting alongside caramelized chocolate malting. Molasses-dipped dried cherry, fig, raisin and date sweetness gains peaty respite as well as subdued chestnut, banana bread and toffee notions.
Well-balanced autumnal offering laces spritzy cinnamon-spiced caramel malting with leafy hop foliage and wispy pecan nuttiness over mildly earthen bottom. Easygoing seasonal fare for the masses.
Crisply clean moderate-bodied lager maintains lightly creamed pastry-like cereal grain sugaring and biscuity pilsner malting to envelop lemony orange-melon briskness while mild grassy hop astringency stays firm. Sessionable summer excellence.
On tap at Biggie’s, cryogenic hops intensify citric bittering, resinous hemp-oiled musk and mild floral-spiced perfuming. Tropical mango, pineapple and tangerine tang contrasts lightly lingered lemon-juiced orange peel and grapefruit rind bitterness. Fairly bold.
On tap, crisply balanced medium-bodied blonde ale brewed exclusively for Brady’s in Ramsey retains brisk mouthfeel. Mild orange-peeled bittering gains pleasant pineapple-grapefruit-peach tang, proper citric-perfumed hop astringency and glass-sugared pale malting as fizzy carbolic spritz tingles tongue.
Exemplary updated 2016 version of briskly clean tripel unleashes sunny lemony orange-juiced grapefruit tang and sweet banana-clove goodness onto mildly creamed candi-sugared crystal malting. Recessive lemon meringue, grilled pineapple, peach, mango and papaya undertones as well as wispy floral-spiced herbage deepen conviction. “Americanized” Simcoe, Columbus and Amarillo hops enliven effervescent fruitful nature.
